At least seven missing in Alabama after deadly weekend tornadoes

At least seven missing in Alabama after deadly weekend tornadoes

Trump said "it's been a tragic situation but a lot of good work is being done".

The National Weather Service stated the twister was stronger than any that hit the U.S. in 2018. "He saw her first, the best friend, comforted her".

Before Sunday's event, an EF-5 tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri, in May 2011 killed 158 people; a month earlier a series of tornadoes had left an estimated 316 people dead, including at least 250 in Alabama.

Johnathan's mother, Shamel Hart, told reporters at a news conference about the loss of two children in the family, according to CNN affiliate WRBL.

According to tornado researcher Richard Stokoe at the University of South Wales, elevated death tolls in Alabama can largely be ascribed to the density of mobile homes, housing nearly 15% of the state's population, the geography of the region and type of coniferous vegetation.

As of Tuesday, officials said, the number of missing was seven or eight.

"She loved learning. She was inquisitive-always had something to contribute to the lesson", Cox said. Relatives said one extended family lost 10 members.

Choking back tears, Kidd said, "We could've lost all three of them and we know there are families that lost their entire family".

"I did a fireman carry over some trees, and when we got there there was a man in a truck, and he jumped out with a chainsaw and started plowing through trees to make a path for my cousin and me to bring our babies to him".

Kylie Jenner is officially the world's youngest billionaire
Kylie Cosmetics a year ago signed a deal with Ulta Beauty to put her products in all of the retailer's 1,163 United States stores. She has since reversed course, however, and now says that the reason her family is no longer together is because of Thompson.

The president and first lady visited a row of 23 crosses-representing each life taken by the tornado-and observed a moment of silence in front of each marker. "We will recover, and we will lift up Lee County in this time of need". "I wanted to come the day it happened but they said wait".

Then on Tuesday night, they got an unexpected surprise.

President Trump is visiting storm-stricken Alabama on his way to Florida, where he'll spend the weekend with his family and raise money for his reelection campaign. It was on the ground for a total of 70 miles (26 in Alabama and 44 in Georgia), making it 20 times more lasting than the average 3.5-mile tornado.

"Everybody in this area just about was related", said Demetria Jones, 28.

Forecasters ranked the worst of the outbreak at step four of the six-step Enhanced Fujita scale of tornado strength.

The tornadoes, stirred up by a late-winter "supercell" thunderstorm, toppled mobile homes and uprooted massive trees on Sunday with 170 mile-per-hour (274 km-per hour) winds.

iHeart stations in Birmingham, Auburn, Gadsden and Tuscaloosa are partnering with the Alabama Broadcasting Association for the iHeartRadio Lee County Tornado Relief, a disaster relief fundraiser benefiting Community Foundation of East Alabama's Long-Term Recovery Fund.

Hardest hit was the rural area of Beauregard, Alabama, near the Georgia border, with a population of some 10,000 people.
